~~a good approximation of where we are standing
on the Gulf disaster. While we are in denial,
people are getting sick because they are not
being informed by the media. It begs the question,
how much culpability does the media need to own
when they are minimizing this issue and allowing
the public to think all is well on its way to the
way it was. It will never be the way it was, and
the way it is, is a toxic envionmental disaster
that the current administration is calling it quits
on. I hope people remember this come the elections...

On October 22, AP reported that over 7,000 square miles of Gulf waters off Florida's Panhandle were declared oil-free and reopened to fishing. According the the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 96% of Gulf waters are now safe and reopened, spokeswoman Jane Lubchenco saying, "Our tests continue to reveal seafood from the reopened areas is safe to eat." Others disagree.
